Two (1 pound each) halibut steaks (3/4-inch thick)

About 1/4 cup green olive paste (olivada)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Olive oil to drizzle over the top


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Remove skin from steaks and the flesh away from the bone; you'll end up with 4 pieces of fish from each steak so you have 8 small fillets in all. Cut a slit on the side of each piece and stuff with some of olivada. Lightly season the two sides of the steaks with salt and pepper. Transfer them to a baking pan, drizzle the top with olive oil and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until just cooked through.
  3. Keep your eye on the fish; you really don't want to overbake it or it will dry out; the insides should have a trace of translucence in them.
